I used to use Dior Show, Lancome Hypnosis, or Badgal Lash then I eventually switched to Almay Intense I-Color Mascara but the bottle dries out in a week and I noticed that even with makeup remover it was tough on my lashes to get it off. Luckily I tried L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara because I love it as much as my Badgal and it is a 4th of the cost. For people who have problems with clumping they probably aren't swiping the excess off the brush before they apply and they have to finish one I completely before they switch to the other. To apply with a clean brush simply hold the wand handle and slide the bristles against the opening of the bottle so there aren't any goopy areas on the brush. I use to do this with my Dior show as well. In addition to applying with a clean brush, you will also want to start at the base of your lash line and use a zig-zag motion as you draw the wand up your lashes. If you are getting clumps then just work on your application. A lot of the thickening/volume mascaras will look clumpy if you don't clean ans zig-zag. You can also use a lash comb right after applying (before it sets) if you want to get every lash combed out but this will reduce the thick look of your lashes. In addition to this note that can hopefully help you make a choice these are some additional pros.

Pros:
- Thickens and Lengthens
- Doesn't clump when used correctly
- The Carbon Black is a nice deep black color
- Depending on your look for the day you can do a light one coat or layer it on to do that sex kitten eye look
- I think it healed my lashes from the damage the Almay brand did, really nourishing
- Washes off easily, I don't even need makeup remover now, yay!
- I'm only on day 20 with this but I do think it will last the full month
-Curved brush so you can really get every lash and sweep them upward

I've been through a TON of mascaras over the years, and this one's my fave. I put a light layer on first, then go back over for the real volume. I have long lashes that are blonde at the ends, so this stuff makes them pop like magic. It lasts a few months before I can tell it's getting dry and it's time to get a new one. I love to layer this mascara, I get it in brown/black since that goes with my coloring.

It really adds volume and length if you put it on carefully. I wipe the excess off the brush back into the bottle. Once I had a system for putting it on, it's amazing. It's 8 bucks a tube at Walgreen's, so def a good deal on here. It stays on so well it can be hard to get off. I use Trader Joe's Nourish face cleanser, and it's tear-free so I can rub it on my eyes.

Messy, gloppy, clumpy, smudges, smears. One of the worst mascaras I have ever tried. I usually use Estee Lauder and recently discovered
Maybelline New York Lash Discovery Mascara. It does a great job for a 1/4 of the price of Estee Lauder. A little bit of smudging under the eyes at the end of they day but for the price, no big deal.

Even after cleaning all the excess off the wand the L'Oreal went on clumpy and smeared under my eyes in a matter of hours.

Maybe it was a bad batch but I won't use it again.

I have tried lots of mascaras, but always come back to L'Oreal's Voluminous Mascara. I normally get the straight brush, but thought I'd try the curved brush. It worked fine, but I think I'll stick with the straight brush - it just seemed easier to use. But overall this is the best mascara I've tried - and I've tried some of those $20+ designer brands (most were horrible). This one is does what it says it will, looks great, doesn't flake and is a really good price.

thin lashes longer and fuller without smudging or clumping. I want something that is easy to use, both when I apply in the morning and when I take it off at night.

In the past, I think I've made a mistake by purchasing products labeled as "waterproof" (somehow, I thought that this was necessary both for when I'm wearing contact and for better wearability). This time, however, I purchased the original version of L'Oreal Voluminous. I have been very happy with this product. Normally I don't particularly like a curved brush, but I find this one easy to use and just the right size. Although from the name of the mascara, one would expect it mainly to provide volume, it also does a great job of lengthening and separating my lashes with no clumping. Overall, my lashes appear both longer and fuller while still looking natural--perfect for everyday. The mascara stays on my lashes all day without clumping, fading, or flaking, yet it also washes off easily with cleanser at night.

So what makes this mascara less than perfect? The one issue that I have with this mascara is that when removing the wand, too much product comes out on the brush. This requires me to either wipe the excess off with a tissue (which I don't like to do because 1) it's wasteful and 2) it risks issues fibers getting into my eyes), or wipe the excess on the rim of the tube, which is what I usually do. However, this can be messy, and it is kind of a pain--why can't manufacturers just put something inside the tube which would swipe off the excess product as the wand is being pulled out of the tube?

Despite this one (relatively minor) flaw, this is my current favorite mascara, and I definitely will re-purchase.

Of all the mascaras I've used, L'Oreal is the best. The color is just right, and the product provides excellent lash coverage. The curved brush is another matter...it tends to clump the mascara, and sometimes I have to use a safety swab to spread the mascara evenly. Still, I prefer this mascara over other brands that I've tried.

One of the best mascara's I've used. The only issue is that it hard to get the clumps off of the brush when you pull it out of the bottle since it is so thick.

Is there a best mascara out there on the market? I don't think so, and I have tried most of them. Each mascara I have tried, as a plus and a minus. They either smudge or do not last very long. They are either difficult to apply or too thick to apply. None have proved to have everything I want, except this mascara.

It has a no fragrance that I appreciate. It goes on very smoothly without smudging or leaving little bits here and there. And, this mascara stays on for at least eight hours. Now, that one point, staying power is miraculous. While I was having chemo, my eyelashes fell out, as did my eyebrows. I did not feel whole until I could apply mascara. Otherwise, I looked like a cancer victim, which us not what I wanted.

A friend gave me this mascara, and it was a wonderful surprise. Not expecting much, it turned out to be one of the nicest mascara a I have ever used. I will keep using it, as my age climbs, I want a nice eye definition.

I normally use and love L'Oreal mascara, but this product with curved brush was the worst, almost unusable. When pulled out of container, there would be big clumps of mascara attached to the brush requiring repeated manipulation of the brush in the container to somehow remove the clumps. Finally I threw it out. Would not recommend.

Washes off easily but stays on through tears, rain and sweat. At about 3 months it starts to dry a little but that is when it should be replaced. L'Oreal is one of the more quality cosmetic companies for the price.
